Hi! I’m Kelly and welcome to our 2nd Chance Restoration page!  We are a family owned business started by accident after I lost my corporate job due to layoffs. I needed to provide an income somehow, and even though I had been painting small furniture pieces since I was young, it never occurred to me to take a hobby and passion and turn it into something bigger.  We started small with a desk here and there, and then bureaus, etc.  Then we noticed a need for cabinets to be transformed (bathrooms AND kitchens), and banister updates, and whitewashing of fireplaces etc…  We pride ourselves on seeing a need and being the ‘go to’ place for so many who are looking to do some refreshes to their homes.

Here we are more than 10 years later with hundreds of clients, a 98% referral rate, countless pieces that have been restyled and thousands of cabinet doors that have been transformed. We love working with our clients who are striving to keep their family heirlooms as showcase pieces and are excited to see what each year has in store for us. I hope you’ll join us on the journey and enjoy looking through our website for inspiration…

If you’re not a Swifty/Kelce fan and scrolling tonite instead, STOP and take a look at this stunner 👀

“The Best Day” for me is install day and when you get to work with the color Azure Tide, “Sparks fly’. I love when homeowners get their first look and say I can’t believe this kitchen is ‘“Mine”. To their old kitchen, “We are never ever getting back together”.

Okay that took too much thought 💋💋💋

I can not say enough about Kelly and 2nd Chance Restoration. Kelly just finished painting my 20 year old Natural Maple kitchen cabinets. The cabinets were in near perfect condition and though I wanted a new look I was a bit anxious about the cabinets looking painted. Kelly has done numerous pieces of furniture for me and my family over the years some of which she has labeled as her biggest headaches and everything has come out better than our expectations. This project however was major if it didn’t come out well. Kelly didn’t disappoint, we had her do the cabinets while we were on vacation so she could come and go as she pleased. We returned to a beautiful “new” white kitchen. It looks better than we ever imagined and they truly look like new cabinets. I can’t believe we waited so long to do it. Everyone who has walked in my house can’t believe they are the same cabinets! It is a pleasure to work with Kelly, she is thorough in her estimating and explaining options and the scope of the work. She returns calls, texts and emails quickly. Her prices are always fair and when we returned home there was no sign that they had ever been there, she is extremely neat. I without hesitation recommend her and 2nd Chance Restoration for all refinishing projects.


I highly recommend using 2nd Chance Restoration. Kelly is worth the wait & the $$. She made my kitchen vision come true. You feel she cares about her work and your satisfaction. She provided much more than just an exceptional painting job. She is very professional and has all the right tools. She answered all my questions, addressed any of my concerns and educated me on the process. She fixed little dings and imperfections in the prep stage so my cabinets look like they shipped fresh from the factory. She made a special visit prior to starting to calm my nerves on my color choice (a little out of the ordinary) and she went way beyond to find my soft close hinges when they were out of stock everywhere. Kelly and her husband are a pleasure to work with. Get on her waitlist!!
